50 years ago, man set foot on the moon. I remember so clearly watching it in a cafeteria with so many other students that summer. The Apollo 11 moon landing still tells us that, if we put our minds to it, we can do big things for America and the planet.

I’ll always remember watching Apollo 11 land on the moon. With the anniversary approaching & as more and more entities look to go to the moon, we’ve got to protect these sites for future generations. My Senate-passed One Small Step Act would do just that. 🚀

The and I pushed Border Patrol leadership hard. Overcrowding. Migrants without the help they need. It doesn’t have to be this way. These are decisions from the top of the Trump admin. We must pass our bill to help end it—the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act.

Humans being locked in cages. To see these people, coming to America in search of a better life, treated in such inhumane conditions. This is heart-wrenching. This is wrong. This is not who we are. This has to end. Now.

“The challenge is immediate and severe.” “Unfortunately, opposition from Senate Republicans has blocked bold climate action in Congress. Under McConnell’s leadership, the Senate has become a legislative graveyard for climate action.” —

I’m overwhelmed by the hardship these families, especially kids, have endured&the generosity of all the volunteers. I’m more determined than ever to fight for comprehensive immigration reform&make sure asylum seekers, who are escaping persecution&violence, can find a home here.

Just got done with my trip to the southern border in McAllen, TX. Our immigration system is broken. You can’t walk into these facilities, see these children, and believe that this situation is acceptable. America is better than this.

We can argue over immigration policy, but we shouldn't have to argue over the treatment of children. It should be a fundamental American value that we treat children with compassion when they arrive at our border. Today’s trip to McAllen, Texas really brought that message home.

Every person coming to America should be treated with respect, no matter their race, no matter their country of origin. We must be better than this.

I went to the border today not just as a United States Senator, but as a granddaughter of immigrants, a mother, and a daughter. This culture of cruelty has to stop. We have to remember our humanity.

What we saw today in facilities at the southern border was unbearable, inhumane, heartbreaking. Migrants and families and kids coming to America searching for a better life CANNOT be treated this way. This is not who we are. This must end. Now.

We took a moment to pray with these families with Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley. These are families, fleeing violence, seeking a better life in America. Charities like this one are helping provide them with the basics, food and showers.

As Americans, we must uphold our nation’s values & stick up for the most vulnerable. Today I visited refugees & migrant families along our southern border. White, black, or brown - everyone deserves to be treated w/ dignity & respect & we must fix our broken immigration system.

I am heartbroken by what I’m witnessing at the Southern border today. I asked this young boy if he has been able to brush his teeth in the American holding facility. He replied: “No.” We are better than this. We have to be better than this.

This is not acceptable. A child telling us he’s not able to even brush his teeth in a facility on our southern border. These are human beings, children, kids, families, fleeing violence. This is not who we are.

The Acting Head of the Border Patrol just confirmed to me that the vast majority of migrants coming to the United States are NOT criminals. These are human beings fleeing danger. They deserve to be treated humanely and with respect.

I'm with to investigate the horrific conditions at our southern border where the Trump administration is detaining children and families. We will not turn a blind eye as the administration continues its campaign of terror and fear mongering.
